The Senton Bombs are an English rock band formed in Blackpool, Lancashire in 2004. Their musical range covers alternative rock, hard rock, punk rock, southern rock and country.[1]

History[edit]

Briefly known as The Terrorists,[2] the original line-up consisted of Joey Class (L.J. Kilgallon) on bass/vocals, brothers Damien Kage and Jimmy Kage on guitars, and Ronnie Bomb on drums. Following several demo recordings, settling on their current line-up with Johnny Gibbons and Scott Mason joining on lead guitar and drums respectively, the band released their debut album Sweet Chin Music in 2009.[3]

Their second album Gambit followed in 2012, with reviewers stating it showed more maturity with a wider variety of musically technical songs.[4] In 2014 the band released their third album Chapter Zero, growing their reputation as a rising punk infused rock & roll band,[5][6][7] followed by the EP Phantom High in 2014 on independent labels STP and Holier Than Thou Records.[8]

In 2015, following an endorsement from Vintage Guitars,[9] the Bombs toured their new single "Mainstream"[10][11][12] across the UK, Denmark, Holland and Germany.[13] The follow-up single "Train Wreck" received national radio play on Planet Rock and Kerrang. In 2016 they signed a deal with German label 7Hard for the international release of their fourth studio album Mass Vendetta, which garnered multiple comparisons to Guns N' Roses.[14][15]

Following several festival appearances and support slots with the likes of The Supersuckers[16] and Bullets & Octane, the Bombs released their fifth studio album Outsiders in late 2018.[17][18]

In 2020 the band released new singles "Be What You Want"[19] and "Blue Sunset"[20] from a forthcoming sixth album. Following several more singles, the album "Aerial Threat" was released in March 2021. Reviewers praised the albums diversity[21] and highlighted the "90s vibe",[22] noting the Blackpool quartet had met the high expectations from their earlier releases, offering lyrics everyone can relate to - ‘Age is just the counting of rotations round the sun, don’t let the growing number spoil the fun’[23]
